Hello, I mainly inspect HUD homes full time. This time of year all utilities are off and the pipes have been winterized. The firm I work for is wanting me to get setup to test plumbing using air. I know how, just wondered if anyone else on here conducts the test and maybe find out what kind of equipment would be best to purchase? gas powered Generator and small compressor or a gas powered Generator. it only has to pump up to about 10 psi. Thanks
